Selection & Placement - Glendon Future Students

Residence Guarantees

You are guaranteed an offer of residence if you are a first-year student admitted for the Fall session directly from a high school and you apply by June 1, 2019.

Single Room Guarantee: You will be assigned to a single room if you are a first-year student admitted with a minimum 90% average, and you apply by June 1, and you select the single room preference.

Students who apply after June 1: We cannot guarantee you a space in residence and you could be placed on a waiting list. Space will be offered as it becomes available throughout the summer.

Assignment and Preferences

You can select up to two preferred residences on your application, however Housing cannot guarantee to meet your specific requests. You should be prepared to accept any available space in any building. All residences have a great support system and experience to offer to first-year students.

Roommate Matching

Students who are placed in a double room are typically assigned with roommates of the same gender. The residence application asks specific questions about lifestyle preferences which will be used to match compatibility with potential roommates. To ensure optimal compatibility and harmonious roommate relations, please make sure you answer the questions thoroughly and honestly.

If students are offered a double space and accept the offer, they will have the opportunity to self-select a roommate. Housing and Conference Services will notify students who have successfully accepted a double room when the roommate selection time opens. Students can then return to the online residence application and select/accept a roommate among those who accepted the same space type and residence building. If a student opts not to select a roommate, Housing and Conference Services will assign them a roommate based on compatibility match percentage determined by their answers to the lifestyle preference questions during the application.

Note that a student may only select/accept one roommate and will no longer have access to Roommate Selection after doing so. If circumstances or roommate preference change, please contact glendon@yorku.ca.

Offer Acceptance and Confirmation

Residence offers will be sent out via email starting June where students will be given the following details:

  • The type of room and the residence building being offered,
  • The instructions on how to accept their offers online including paying the room offer deposit.

If you decline your residence offer then you may ask to be placed on a wait list or have your application cancelled.

If you do not respond to your residence offer by the deadline indicated, your offer will expire and your application will be cancelled. You may contact Housing and request to reactivate your application and be placed on a waiting list.

Information about moving in to residence will be available on Residence Move-in Information page and will be updated as it gets closer to move-in day. A Move-in Package email will be sent to residents who accepted a space prior to arrival.

Upon move-in, students may not change their building or room assignment without permission from Housing and Conference Services through a transfer request. The Transfer Request Form goes online every October. If experiencing roommate conflicts or other challenges, residents must first contact their Don or Residence Life Coordinator. Transfer will not be granted unless they are mediated by Residence Life & Housing and Conference Services, and pending room availability. If you receive written approval to transfer to another residence/room, you will be charged a transfer fee and you will be responsible for covering any additional room upgrade costs, if applicable.

Waitlisted Applicants

Housing and Conference Services will endeavour to update students on wait list status from time to time. However, it is the student’s responsibility to follow up regarding this by emailing glendon@yorku.ca.
